Public Class ChartArea3DStyle


This class provides the styles for 3D chart areas, and is exposed using the Area3DStyle property.

To enable 3D for a chart area, set the Enable3D property to true. This causes 3D to be applied to all data series drawn in a chart area.

An isometric projection of a chart area can be displayed by setting the IsRightAngleAxes property to true, which is the default. Isometric views are not actually 3D, because the displayed angles of rotation may not match the actual angles of rotation around the vertical and horizontal axes. The actual angles are controlled using the Rotation and Inclination properties, respectively.

For more information about isometric projections, see the Remarks section of the IsRightAngleAxes property.

You can also use this class to:

  • Cluster bar and column chart data series using the IsClustered property.

  • Control the lighting effects using the LightStyle property.

  • Set the width of chart area walls using the WallWidth property.

  • Set the amount of perspective with the Perspective property.

  • Control the depth of data points and the distance between data rows using the PointDepth and PointGapDepth properties, respectively.

  • Rotate a chart area using the Inclination and Rotation properties.

To work with coordinates of 3D points, use the Point3D class.

When a chart is set to 3D, the following chart features are not valid:

  • Scale breaks

  • Gradients

  • Scrolling and zooming
